How to: Sumo Deadlift
Primary Muscles Used:Upper Legs, Glutes, Hamstrings
- Standing directly behind a kettlebell, plant both feet on the floor further than hip-width apart and point both feet slightly outward. Bend at both the hips and knees to place your hands on the kettlebell in an overhand grip (palms facing towards your body). Draw your shoulder blades down and back to push your chest out slightly. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Exhale. Using your glutes and hamstrings, push through the heels of your feet to extend your hips and legs to find a neutral standing position, ensuring that you maintain a proud chest and your head is an extension of your spine.
- Inhale. Bend at the hips and knees to return to the starting position, ensuring that your knees remain behind your toes. Once again, ensure that you maintain a proud chest and that your head is an extension of your spine. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
